A Close Encounter

Though not of the 3rd kind, Leoni enjoyed following and petting the tortoises in Las Vegas. We have 4 desert tortoises, Sheldon & Shelonda (the adults) and two babies that are actually 5 years old and not really named. Yes, they are the offspring, though we don't know who the parents are. We used to have another female, Flip, who died from the same action as her namesake, and we had another male, Dodge, who moved on to another home. So, it is anyone's guess.

This is Sheldon, the largest and oldest, who we have had for 25 years. It is pretty much the only animal she enjoys getting close enough to touch.
